In For A Big Change

Our weatherman is telling us to be prepared for some cold weather that's headed our way. By tomorrow our temps are to drop nearly 35 degrees with a low Tuesday night around 17F and a high 26F. So much for that touch of spring we’ve enjoyed the past several days.

We drove over to get the propane bottle filled to provide some heat for Sandy’s area for the next several days. Even though it doesn’t keep you totally warm it does a good job on the legs and feet.

I don’t normally watch to many movies made for TV but last night the Hallmark Hall Of Fame movie “The Lost Valentine” was a keeper. If you didn't get  a chance to watch it look for it when it comes around again. I assure you want regret it. If it doesn’t bring a tear or two somethings wrong with you.

A friend from Georgia sent me the following email and I wanted to share it with you.  Amazing pictures ---


January of this year, 2010, the weather stayed so cold in St. Louis, Missouri and Alton, Illinois that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a meal.

They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together. 

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell.

They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A retired teacher took these photos in front of his home.


Feeding the Eagles!

A beautiful morning feeding the eagles, Jan. 2010

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and word spread fast! 

Eagles vying for the fish, January, 2010.

No zoom lens used here!  The photographer was this close! 

Here are the men who were feeding them. So close!!

As you know, it was not too long ago that the American Bald Eagle was an endangered species.






Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
